Wars of Light and Shadow #03: Warhost of Vastmarkby Janny Wurts
Synopses & Reviews
Tricked once more by his wily half-brother, Lysaer, Lord of Light, arrives at the tiny harbor town of Merior to find that Arithon's ship yards have been abandoned and meticulously destroyed, and that the Master of Shadow has disappeared as if into thin air. Meanwhile Arithon and the Mad Prophet Dakar are traveling on foot through the treacherous Kelhorn Mountains towards the Vastmark clans, there to raise further support for his cause. But raising a warhost is a costly business. Is it mere coincidence that Princess Talith—Lysaer's beautiful, headstrong wife—is taken captive and held for a vast ransom by a master brigand? The forces of light and shadow circle and feint, drawing ever closer to a huge conflict. And in the background the Fellowship of Seven Sorcerers and the Koriani Enchantresses watch and plan, and wait.
Janny Wurts's epic tale of two half-brothers cursed to life-long enmity reaches new heights in this third volume.
Lysaer, Prince of Light, lacks the means to transport his vast warhost, but swears he will still capture Arithon, Master of Shadow, defenseless in his shipyard at the seaside village of Merior. Arithon has no choice but to attempt the impossible--to see one ship launched before Lysaer can corner him, or to raise up a counterforce and meet in battle.
The Mistwraith's curse of vengeance has locked two princes into an ever deeper pattern of enmity. Since the deception and betrayal which ended Ships of Merior, their struggle has widened to encompass the fates of the world.
Lysaer, Prince of Light--committed to serving justice, deeply bitter over the total destruction of his fleet, he lacks the means to transport his vast warhost, but swears he will still capture Arithon, defenseless in his shipyard at the seaside village of Merior...
Arithon, Master of Shadow--set back since the fire which has damaged the vessels he built to escape into freedom, he has no choice but to attempt the impossible: to so one ship launched before Lysaer's warhost can corner him, or to raise up a counterforce and meet on a field at a ruinous cost in bloodshed.
A tale of magic, mysticism and conflict played out over generations as the Lord of Light and Master of Shadow struggle for advantage.
